Gary -- glad someone found some fish who came out to play. Did you read Kush's Vancouver Island adventure? Some of the lawns in our town look like they're going to need cutting!!

The one thing I found with this cast, I didn't need to mend once. I just needed to let the big, upstream belly drift toward me for a moment or two, then pick it up. The fly was fishing before the indy reached me.

This crude diagram shows the shape of the line and the upstream position of the line and the fly at the end of the cast when the line has hit the water.

The current drifts the whole shebang across the front of the angler and one needs only to pick up the slack in the belly.
